4 Benefits of Using STACK for Painting Projects

1. Collaborate With Team Members

Work with anyone using STACK. Employees, coworkers, external partners and others can access your project documents on a single platform. You can control each person’s privileges over your documents, such as whether they can make changes or are limited to viewing them. STACK permission tools work for plans, schedules, estimates and any other files you include in your platform.

If you need to highlight specific details, use the Plan Markup tool to call attention to something. Everyone stays aligned and up to date when you work out of STACK.

2. Complete Work From the Cloud

Work from home, the office, your job site or anywhere else you need to be. Our cloud-based software is accessible from anywhere you can use the internet. Update project plans or schedules as you work instead of waiting until you get back to the office. Keep your team, partners and clients up-to-date on progress and changes from the cloud with STACK.

3. Organize Project Plans and Schedules

Store everything you need to complete your painting project in a single location with STACK. STACK includes numerous features including AutoNaming. When uploading documents, your plan pages will be named according to your naming conventions to maximize organization. You can also take advantage of several other features, like Plan Search.

STACK’s interface is extremely easy to use and includes drag and drop functionality. Easily move files in and out of cascading folders to keep everything organized. STACK also comes with a Plan Overlay feature that allows you to see changes between different versions of your project plans, helping you stay on track.

4. Estimate Job Costs

Reduce the number of errors that slip by through STACK. Our painting estimate software comes with AutoCount, which helps you determine material quantities. Make items and assemblies lists by inputting the materials you use for your painting jobs. Once you’ve made a template for one project, you can save it for reuse during future jobs.

With STACK, you can take measurements or input the numbers yourself and allow the software to complete the calculations for you. Record overhead, waste, labor and other costs, too. Once you have everything inside the software, you can generate a proposal using your branding materials.
